The Masterpiece

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

It hangs on the fringes of me

Words keep compiling

This masterpiece waiting

For what- I’ve suffered enough

Show yourself against my being

Divorced words keep rebelling

I paid my toll against misspelling

Rise up and hold me…please

This wait is of thirst and worst

You peak in at me and I see you

Hiding in this grain of my life

Staining passionate pain into strife

Release your words

And let me be

Let me write

Write

The masterpiece of my life

Yes, lately I been feeling like this, it's so close and yet it can't quite make it's way in. I can feel this heat rising in me likes it's going to once and for all come forward, but then another sunset and it waits. Weird I guess, and frustrating.

I agree. Lately I've been feeling the same way... except I can tell I have a while to wait... it will come my friend and I will be here to read it when it does

Although this is a poet's poem, it still strikes a chord with everyone that wants to tell his/her story. Great Work!

Thx Joshua, just so you know I have redone this poem and believe it to be so much better than this original. A lesson I must learn is to write these pieces-review and rewrite until I'm fianally satisfied- I think I've re-written every poem I've ever submitted to Hennen's for the better. I seem to think it's perfect right after writing them and then later realize they are never even close to what they can be. A lesson I'm learning. Thanks agin for this site.
